O'Grady, Emmanuel – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2017
Respect is a fundamental aspect of how human beings relate to each other and, arguably, is a significant factor in the relationship between student and teacher. For incarcerated adults, the relationships they foster with their teachers (and by extension the respect or disrespect cultivated within it) often have a considerable impact on their…

Collica-Cox, Kimberly – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2016
This article explores the importance of social bonds in facilitating an investment in prosocial behavior amongst female prisoners working as HIV peer educators.

Gunnison, Elaine; Helfgott, Jacqueline B.; Wilhelm, Cecilie – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2015
Much of the literature on reentry of formerly incarcerated individuals revolves around discussions of failures they incur during reintegration or the identification of needs and challenges that they have during reentry from the perspective of community corrections officers. The present research fills a gap in the reentry literature by examining…

Lockwood, Susan Klinker; Nally, John M.; Ho, Taiping; Knutson, Katie – Journal of Prison Education and Reentry, 2015
Previous studies, both international and domestic, rarely examined racial disparities in post-release employment and recidivism. Finding a job is an immediate challenge to all ex-prisoners, and often more difficult for African American ex-prisoners who typically return to economically-depressed neighborhoods upon release from prison. The present…
